okay this one is easy, a pair of upside down nuns!

Reb Chaim HaQoton said...

the upside down nuns from Sefer Vayihi which separates those two pesukim from the rest of the Torah.

for some reason in the Torah at my shul they looked more backwards than upside down

steg,

it seems there may have been different customs how to insert these nuns. (i saw some when i surveyed the scrolls in the jts rare book room.) sometimes they are inserted inside the pesukim themselves. i was going to post about it this week, but never got to it.
